I have just sent Rich, (you met him and Linda at Woodbridge beer festival) a message to see if he has the kit to re set it. Will let you know.
THanks for that Mathew! just read your post, just as well I did, I was on my way to try it, if I had of done, I would have been flumoxed!!
Getting panicky now, as Yvonnes having surgery on 18th, and I hav'nt got any transport.
I have deff come to the conclusion that it's starter motar or the code between the key and the imobilisor, but what do I know
Testing it is the easy bit bruv! getting it off is the hard bit, as I don't have the facilities, if i know for sure it was the starter motor, i would get a second hand one, and get a mate , who has a garage to fit it, but i don't want to pay for a breakdown truck to take it, with out being absolutley sure
As you seem to have a wealth of knowledge, could this following scenario have happened , ( because it has happened on a rover 2litre vetese coup i once owned ) we live in an area where there are a lot of nasty sleeping policeman, could it be possible that a lead to the solaniod has dropped off with all the banging going over them ? I know ! I know i'm clutching at straws now!
still hav'nt worked out how to put posts up on this site!
Thanks guys for all the advice! I ftnaly got it sorted! I found a remote garage who had the equipment to check the imobiliser. They had it for an hour, rang me and said imobiliser is fine, but I will need a new starter motor in the near future! the car is running at the moment! so the total cost was £30 for recovery, £40 to have the car running. So got the car home, then did a search on line for a second hand starter motor. Found a place called Quick start on the Slough trading who rebuilds them. So! ! paid them a visit and it was run by a really nice Indian chap, after a little haggling he agreed to fit and supply a starter motor in exchange for mine. for £130!!!! what a result!!! whoop de do!! thanks agatn for all the advice!!! and any body in my area that has a simular prob, I am happy to pass on the info!!
